Every day, you wake up, you go to war.
Your scars will tell the stories your lips cannot.
Maybe your love didn’t last, but the evidence of change means that you were good for each other, good enough to allow personal growth.
So if you have a personality as confusing as I find my own, please please try and harness the good from it. Try your very best not to fight any aspect of yourself and find a way to make both contradictory aspects work for you. You are human and humans are supposed to be confusing.
1. People will love you, but you must remember, they are human. And being human means they are going to make mistakes. Sometimes great, sad, heartbreaking, devastating mistakes that hurt more than anything.
You are still beautiful, even if you feel broken. These parts of you that are broken deserve to be preserved in lacquered gold because your experiences simply add to your journey. So treasure them. Treasure everything that you have become and what you have left behind.
Not once when I have called her crying has she never had time for me. Not once has she ever let me down when I needed her. So when you told me you didn’t like her because she was too much independence and wildness for you to fathom, when you told me I had to choose between you and her, I chose her so easily, I barely skipped a beat.
Betrayal sometimes wears the mask of a best friend or a lover that was supposed to be a great love. And it always takes us by surprise because if we expected it, we would in no way be betrayed.
When you face terrible people, whether it is in school, or in university, or at work, I want you to remind yourself that you are worth more, and you are not to be tarnished by their iron like assessment of your golden heart. You are not to allow them to touch your angel made soul. You cannot, under any circumstances, allow them to damage everything that makes you good, and kind, and most importantly you.
And when you finally find someone to love, I hope you find someone who you are completely comfortable being naked around.
